A sector with exceptional risks

A job in the media sector carries specific risks.

  • The equipment and techniques used are becoming increasingly sophisticated under the influence of digitalisation. Damage to your equipment involves high costs, not only for the repair or replacement. A temporary halt in production is also a heavy financial burden. You should cover yourself for this.
  • Media activities involve unforeseeable risks and bring you into contact with many different parties. So good insurance of your liability is also a must.

Specialised insurance solution for the media sector

Van Dessel has a very broad experience in insuring people and companies active in the media sector:

  • production houses,
  • film producers (including Tax Shelter),
  • TV channels,
  • companies that hire out audiovisual equipment,
  • camera and sound people,
  • professional photographers.

As a result, we know the needs and the dangers in the sector like no other. Our know-how has been translated into a unique insurance solution that perfectly meets your specific equipment and liability needs.
